[box_light] “I’m going to test his heart and I’m going to be 100 percent for him and he’s going to face a hungry, hungry lion. I have faith in my ability. No man can stand against me when I am in this frame of mind. I am very happy to represent Brazil and am looking forward to this week and enjoying the UFC being here. But once I am in the Octagon, and the door slams shut, it is all business. Anthony Johnson will be defeated in my homeland.”[/box_light]

Former UFC champion, Vitor Belfort is set to welcome Anthony Johnson to the middleweight division this weekend in Rio.

With his lone loss since returning to the Octagon coming at the hands of Anderson Silva, Vitor is chomping at the bit for a rematch.

Explosive, dynamic and experienced, Vitor will have to thwart off Johnson’s takedown attempts and use superior striking technique to take out the bigger, stronger and younger man.

But will he be able to?
